About World AIDS Day
World AIDS day is celebrated on 1st December every year. It is caused to the human body by a disease called HIV that is, “Human Immunodeficiency Virus.” The main motive of this day is to direct the world to fight against HIV. There are many people who have died because of HIV related disease. This day is organized to remember those people and to support people who are facing HIV. World AIDS day was founded in 1988 and the first ever global health day. Since then, every year United Nations agencies, government and civil societies join to campaign around specific themes related to AIDS.
The red ribbon is the indication of HIV that is considered as a universal symbol of support and awareness for living with HIV. In India, the National AIDS Control Program (NACP) is a centrally sponsored scheme by the ministry of health and welfare, government of India for raising awareness about AIDS. On estimation, there are around 37.9 million people who have the virus. India has the third largest HIV infections in the world with 2.1 million people living with HIV. People who have AIDS are not respected in society and everywhere they have to face humiliation. It comes under the top five causes of death in the world records.

About World AIDS Awareness
AIDS is the kind of disease that is hard to talk about with someone. I want that on this day, we remember those people who have lost their lives because of HIV related disease, and we should make efforts for a future without HIV and without ignorance with people who have HIV related disease. Death of a person due to ignorance and discrimination is more painful than death due to HIV. So, I wish we should not disrespect the person having this kind of disease and behave with them by humanity. Now it is time for people to take a stand against HIV. I want that on this day, people should tribute their prayers or commemorate those people who have died due to this illness. Wishing you a very happy world AIDS day. May, God bless those people who are facing HIV related illness. And we should also give our blessings to our doctors and scientists who are engaged in finding the treatment for this disease. On the world AIDS day, I wish that people living with HIV should be treated like other people in a discrimination or stigma free environment and with lots of care and inclusively.
We should at least once try for the AIDS free world and be respectful with the people who are living with HIV related illness. On this day, I want to remind you that we can eliminate this disease which is threatening various lives by spreading knowledge and awareness about this disease. My warm wishes on the world AIDS day with those who are the victims of HIV. We can help them people together by hard work and try for a better tomorrow and can provide to our coming generations a world free from AIDS.
